Looking for a quick and easy snack? These nutritional baobab vegan raw lemon bites with coconut flakes are a crowd pleaser. 

 baobab vegan lemon bites


  • 1 cup raw unsalted cashews 
  • 1/2 cup shredded coconut 
  • 1 small lemon or 1/2 large, juice and zest 
  • 1 tablespoon raw honey, agave or other sweetener of choice 
  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil, melted 
  • 1/2 teaspoon pure lemon extract * 
  • 1-2 teaspoons baobab powder 
  • A pinch of turmeric for coloring – optional

* the specific amount depends on what kind you use. You can leave it out and add the zest from another lemon instead.



  1. Start by adding the cashews and shredded coconut to a food processor and pulse until the mixture has turned into a fine meal.
  2. Pour the mixture into a bowl and add the rest of the ingredients. Stir until everything is well combined and roll the mixture into small balls. I rolled half of the lemon bites in shredded coconut, but it was purely for decoration purposes so you can leave that step out if you like.
  3. Put the lemon bites in a lidded container lined with baking paper and place them in the freezer for at least 20 minutes before serving, enjoy!

Our Baobab Fruit powder originates from Malawi, a landlocked country in south central Africa - a country that ranks among the world's least developed countries - with women-led households being the worst hit.  As we celebrate International Women Day (March 8) and women’s’ History month (March), we thought it was a good time to introduce you to our fearless partner and a tireless advocate for women empowerment in Malawi to talk about the plight of women in Malawi.
